I miss going to the 500. My family had tickets there on the front stretch (Tower Terrace) for about 20 years. When Tony George decided to screw up open wheel racing in America, I stuck with CART and didn't go back to the Speedway.

When Penske (the team I've supported for years) went to the IRL, I followed suit, but I still find CART's old philosophy of diverse tracks (temporary road courses, permanent road courses, short ovals, and super speedways) to be the best. This whole left-turn only garbage that happens in NASCAR and the IRL (the token road courses are just that) gets old after a while.

IRL is going road course this year. Check it out, they are racing on the streets of Tampa. I heard it on Speed Channel straight from Michael Andretti yesterday.

Yeah, I know. There will be three road races this year: Watkins Glen, St. Petersburg and Infineon.

But like I said, the token road races are just that (at this point).

I don't think NASCAR has any intention to add more road courses over their current two. IRL drivers (since a number of them in the series came from road racing background) have been calling for road racing for the last few years.

I've been to the race a couple times, but the only auto racing I've ever seen that I like is the WRC stuff (those guys are crazy).

Ah, sweet. I live on the southside of Indy now, but I lived in Bloomington for a year. Little five is always a good time.

I'm from Indiana and just got my tC last night in Greenwood. I don't actually live in Indy though. I work for DePauw University, and I live just a few blocks off campus. Little 5 is huge here too.
